Why are Native Americans angry at Biden’s swearing-in ceremony?
Popular singer Jennifer Lopez’s song at the swearing-in ceremony of US President-elect Joe Biden has been criticized for being controversial.
The poetry of Jennifer Lopez’s song “This Land Is Your Land” dates back to the colonial period.
Criticizing social media, Native Americans have called the song a celebration of the genocide of Native Americans and the occupation of their land at the swearing-in ceremony.
One user says Biden promised unity among all Americans, but he started with a song that symbolizes the extermination of Native Americans.
Native Americans say they have disliked the song since it was written in 1940, as it not only reminds us of the colonial era but also evokes American patriotism. Has been ignored.
They also say that the land was ours, which was made the home of the Americans by new laws after the breach of treaties and genocide of the natives in the colonial era.
